    @tw1704 i hate to be dragged down that racial war.. however how can u get off coming from across the ocean to steal credit from MY HERITAGE..? if you wanna find you some roots BRO.. go dig in central africa. As an egyptian am sure we all have mixed blood.. African blood is a must also caucasian blood from the north. coz unlike you.. ppl back then were open minded & they mixed & bred together. CAUCASOID ( similar to Caucasian but with mixed blood/african/black in them is what describes egyptians)

    @TullioWalker Hi, please educate your self in science and anthropolgy before you make some non-sense statements. Ancient egyptians (before the invation by Assyrians, Greecks, Romans, Arabs and finally Turkish) were most probably Nubians. The difference was a political boarder not ethnic. Because all the modern scientific studies (performed by europeans and americans) show that the samples obtained from mummies of ancient egyptians cluster together with Nubians.

    Samples from the New Dynasty (Greeck-Egypt and Roman-Egypt) cluster to a lesser extent with Nubians, which show the influence of migration by Asians and europeans to egypt after the fall of the true Faraohs of egypt. Alexander the great was a Faraoh and so was Cleopatra. Both of them were from Macedonia/Greece.

    @tonialti Modern egyptians from the north are descendants of Assyrians, Greecks, Romans, Arabs and mostly Turkish like King Farooq and the Pashas and Royal family of Egypt before the revolution in 1952. It is documented in history that egypt was rulled by non-egyptians from 650 B.C. until the revolution in 1952 (only 60 years ago). Naturally most of modern egyptians are non-indeginous to egypt.

    @glendahlman Yes I agree that egyptians are a mixed race. BUT this mixing happened after the year 650 B.C. when massive numbers of immigrants migrated to egypt from Asia and Europe with the invation by the Assyrians and Greecks (Alexander the great). Before 650 B.C egyptians were indeginous African people. So all the famous Faraohs e.g. Ramsis and Nefertiti were Africans and shared ethnicity with Nubians, Ethiopeans and Eretrians.

    Nubians in north Sudan look just like Yemenies, ethiopeans, eretrians and some have straight brown hair too. Some Nubians in south egypt can have some sub-saharan features due to early migration from western dessert around 5000 B.C. (7000 years ago). Nuba people from modern west sudan Nuba mountains do not look like Nubians from north sudan. They have sub-saharan features.

    Africans have different features and skin colors. Many Africans have brown and light brown skin like Nubians in north sudan, ethiopenas, eretrians. They can also have dark brown skin too and some have yellowish-tanned skin just like Arabs. For your information skin color is a reflection of how much pigment (melanin) a person have.

    Europeans specially from the north and west have in-active form of melanin therefore they have no color. They color of their skin is the color of the underlying blood vessels and tissue. So scientifcally speaking there is nothing as black or white skin or people. It is colored people, less colored people or color-less people.

    @bergen422 what`s wierd is that ur pinpointing the exact time where (MIXING) happened, this might be true from a political point of view as change in the ruling dynasty.. but on the people level,am sure this mixing has been going since a long time before..as there were open borders, traders,merchants..etc as proven from the minoan/greek artifacts found in egypt pre-dating the byzantine period as well as egy artifacts found in crete.. etc. as regards the nubian ethnicity part of the pharaos.. ctd

    @bergen422 part of the pharaos, it might also be true for SOME dynasties but not all of the dynasties, don`t forget that in ancient times egypt was divided in two kingdoms the northern one & the southern one..& they were re-united later, up till this day the southern part of egypt (from QUENNA southwards) is known as BELAD el nouba (NUBIAN) but this doesn`t mean that egyptians were ever purely nubian at any period.when it comes to the studies on ethnicity of mummies i would also..ctd

    @bergen422 i would also disagree.. as some mummies esp. those related to the modern dynasty as RAMSES II or tutankamun did show obvious caucasoid features (as modern day egyptians are also described ethnically) as example of the red hair & blue eyes of king ramses II & the re-construction of the face of tutankamun based on the facial bone structure as well as reconstruction of facial tissue covering it, & am sure that picture was over the news & evrybody saw it..ctd

    @bergen422 as for nefertiti, her mummy wasn`t found or pin pointed till this day, but scholars & also historic document indicates that she DEF. was of nubian decent & this just proves my point that mixing wives for the pharos of egypt ( from north or the south)wasn`t an issue. as also documented that when ramsisII married a hetite princess when he had his famous peace treaty with the HETITE king.( marrying princesses from other counries sent to egypt ) wasn`t a new thing. this also explains..ctd

    @bergen422 this explains why the mummies shows diversity in shape, facial features..etc they were`nt just some inbred closed community, and don`t forget that even during the VERY core of pharonic rule, there were periods of weakness where attempts of control from the newly emerging assyrian,babylonian..etc empires were made, all of this accounts for the diversity of features of ancient egyptians, just like modern egyptians… & as its well noted EGYPTIAN presence in egypt was never… ctd

    @bergen422 was never cut, i.e they never just left their land & went elsewhere or there weren`t a great genocide targeting the ancient egyptians, their continuity on the land of egypt continued, it might be true that they had DIFFERENT RULELRS (allbeit some non egyptians) but on the people level they were always there.& this was documented with the transition from one period to the next,pharonic, greek,roman,christianity., arab/islam,ottoman..etc till the modern day egypt…ctd

    @bergen422 egypt..so to say that modern day egyptians are not endogenous to egypt is simply not true, as the relationship of ancient egyptians to the land was never cut, they were mixed with others, true, but also were the ancient egyptians ( but def. to a less extent) and am talking he actual ppl here not the rulers..!!

    @bergen422 @bergen422 hmm.. i suggest you read again what i wrote, coz ur claims simply have no proof,am talking documented history..besides recent dna studies,shows the correlation of ancient & modern egyptians described ethnically as caucaoids.. not just from the late dynasties but from earlier ones as i have posted earlier in response. i never said modern day egytpians are PURE ancient egyptians, but they sure are the closest comparing to any other sudanese.. ethiopeans.. etc

    @bergen422 I beg your pardon. I don’t know who you are. I don’t even know your name. Reading the things you have posted I can see that you are not able to teach anything about egyptian history. Obviously, newspapers are not the best way to know about history. There were black skinned people in Egypt, but, as I said, Egyptians and Nubians are not placed in same tree.

    @tonialti Give me an example of a so-called Egyptian race. Where did this Egyptain race come from? What other culture besides Ethiopia has similarities to Egypt? Since the Nile flows 4,000 miles from the heart of Africa, how is it that outsiders came into Egypt and built it? Why did the Early Egyptians call Punt the land of the Gods? If you decide to answer, give EVIDENCE to back your comment.

    please realise the ‘Africans’ were not racist. so its possible they intermarried from among their continental neighbors and foreign nations. looking for noses and dread locks is a 18th century European endeavors. even in Africa today, strip way political parties and religion and you have one big happy family, for real…
